If you’re a frequent Salesforce user, you’ve probably noticed that there are loads of Chrome extensions that can be installed to make your day-to-day life easier. But which are really worth your time?

This blog is going to focus more so on Admins and Developers more than end-users, but I’ll specify if any of these are also good for end-users. So, let’s dive in.

Salesforce Advanced Code Searcher

For Developers

This helps you get your code a few clicks shorter, as well as being able to search any string in your code.

You can also search
your code components in your salesforce instances:

  • Apex Classes
  • Apex Triggers
  • Visualforce Pages
  • Visualforce Components

Salesforce Lightning Inspector

For Developers

The Salesforce Lightning Inspector opens up and improves your Lightning Component development, giving you access to a wealth of data about your running applications and components.

ORGanizer for Salesforce

For Admins & Developers

ORGanizer for Salesforce is a tool that allows you to recognise Salesforce tabs on your browser.

Salesforce Coloured Favicons

For Admins & Developers

Similar to ORGanizer for Salesforce, this can allow you to change the Salesforce favicon to different colours to be able to easily identify different salesforce orgs, which can also work for different sandbox instances.

Salesforce DevTools

For Developers

A powerful toolkit for Salesforce Developers, which includes Object references, ERD’s, Apex code generator, Query Editor, with others.

Enhanced Salesforce Dashboard

For Admins & Developers

The main feature of this is it allows you to auto-refresh dashboards of up to 7 columns, which gives you real-time information as Salesforce only allows you to refresh daily, weekly or monthly.

LastPass

For Admins & Developers & Users

LastPass is a great way to store usernames and passwords. We use this at oe:gen and when we are having to log into lots of different orgs and sandboxes throughout the day, this is a great way to quickly populate the login form with the orgs username and password.

Salesforce Change Set Helper

For Admins & Developers

Change-set with sort, view all, and additional information, such as last modified date, which allows comparison with all orgs.

Salesforce Workbench Tools for Google Chrome

For Admins & Developers

This is a Google Chrome extension for logging into Salesforce Workbench from an active Salesforce Session.

Salesforce ID Clipper

For Admins & Developers

This helps you get Salesforce IDs from records and links to your clipboard, which works in Lightning and in Communities.

Salesforce Community Page Optimizer

For Developers

Analyse, debug and improve the performance of your Lightning application. It analyses your lightning base community/apps and identifies performance optimization opportunities.

Cisco Webex

For Admins & Developers & Users

As a Salesforce Admin and Consultant, I have to take a lot of online meetings to confer with clients to scope out what they want and be able to check in with them to make sure what we’re building on Salesforce meets their expectations. The most useful bit about Webex is being able to screen-share — this really helps when we are trying to explain something.

Salesforce Chrome Extensions

For Admins & Developers & Users

This allows you to integrate your Gmail account with Salesforce, so you can access Salesforce records inside Gmail.

Grammarly

For Admins & Developers & Users

Grammarly is a great way to check and correct spelling errors. When I’m writing an email or comment on some form of Kanban board, it’s great to have spelling errors highlighted before I press the send button to stop myself looking silly!

Fuze

For Admins & Developers & Users

Fuze is a VoIP integration with Salesforce that lets you call people straight from a Salesforce record. This doesn’t only work for Salesforce records, but any website with a phone number field on it.
